'Donnie Darko' reimagined as an 8-bit videogame

Posted on

CULT DONNIE DARKO
Dale Robinette

It’s Donnie Darkobut without Donnie’s impassioned Smurfette monologue and with 8-bit graphics — the result looks like a very, very mad world, indeed.

CineFix regularly turns beloved movies, like The Big Lebowski and The Shining, into shortened, 8-bit videogame-style versions of themselves, and 2001 cult classic Donnie Darko is the latest creation. Darko fans won’t be disappointed by this retro version of the intense film: The three-minute video is complete with a still-terrifying Frank the rabbit, an appropriately modified “Mad World,” and Donnie’s fiery, self-inflicted demise. Disturbing? Slightly. Really cool? For sure.
